War of the Worlds - Adrian Plass
Adrian considers the pull of the spirit and of the flesh and how this often leads us to live compartmentalised lives. We allow God only into certain bits and suffer embarrassment when our compromised private lives and shiny public lives collide.
War of the Worlds is about spiritual warfare, maturity, prayer and the fear of true commitment. It's a book that battles to reunite the secret world of what we are, with the public world of what we appear to be, in an outrageous and seriously funny advance into the no-man's-land of genuine Christian engagement. Adrian brings the Bible alive with rather unexpected soap opera characters; he introduces us to a God who is much more playful than we thought and asks questions such as:
- If doubt and insecurity are the elephants in the room, how do we deal with these huge creatures?
- How have we allowed so many herds of sacred cows to grow so large? True authenticity demands a major cull.
